1863 January 8 [Clarke County, Va.?]

[from the diary of Matthella Page Harrison as transcribed at a later date]

Thursday, January 8th - Spent today at New Market with sister Mary and Cousin Jane, besides the family.  It seems so strange to see that circle so small.  Oh how many have been scattered by the bridal and tomb since my childhood days.  No news of the outer world today.
